That is the question I ask!!! In this day and age, is it still a mans world, or are women now considered to be more Equal? Do men still earn more money in occupations that women share with them, do men have it easier than women do?? What's your opinion?

Though more and more women are jopining work force today buit I think yes its still men's world today. At least in India. I do't know about abroad. The responsiblity of taking care of family,cooking and cleaning still lies with the women. Men have not shed their roles of coming home switching on TV and wait for the dinner as yet. Its women who have to juggle their careers with home management. When kids are small a women has to stay at home and give up her job, while men are still primary bread winners. I think yes the roles are in the process of changing but they still have to go a long way to go before they can become norms of the society.

Men and women are really all equal. We can never say that men are the only bread winners in the family. There are already many female bread winners. Many womens are now successful in the business world, politics etc. Even if Men have large muscles and they can carry heavy studd that women can't do but still women can do extraordinary things that men can't do. But equality is not really shown in our society because our society is patriarchal. They only see women as lower subjects to men.

I think the fact that you say women are seen as "lower" than men, I do think that is getting better in our society, and women are gaining more respect. Thanks for your views!
